Seated in the heart of downtown. The restaurant was once bright and shiny and now it is a little crabby. The staff usually has a bad attitude, and service is usually slow, and never with a smile. They have a good beer menu and of...More

Super good vegan burrito, and great coffee. My meat-eating husband loved his burrito too! Lots of options and super cheap happy hour. Also-vegan desserts!

Was very excited to try this place but wasn’t really blown away. I love veggie burgers but the ones we had were just ok, nothing extraordinary. Expected a little more but it was ok

We went on a whim. The menu had interesting choices and we enjoyed the meal. The poor review is the attitude of the staff. We were ignored for quite a while. When the meal was brought, there was no check back. Won't be going back.

This is a diner-type place. Service varies on the time and day you're there. The food is always good. It is vegetarian/vegan, with a lot of great choices. Just don't miss their shakes. They are SO good!
